Thales Digital Identity and Security (DIS) is a multifaceted enterprise, providing IT and security services for IoT government programs, banking, mobile encryption, and biometrics. The company began its journey to the cloud after recognizing the benefits of Amazon Web Services (AWS), which allows flexibility of the public cloud in terms of costs and diversity of services. The team quickly moved a dozen legacy solutions to AWS by lifting and shifting, the main objective being to keep customers happy while respecting the service-level agreement. However, after implementing AWS, Thales DIS found it was difficult to control cloud costs. The cloud providers’ native tools they were using were not able to answer all of their needs. The team soon recognized the need for a comprehensive cloud management platform to attain visibility into the growing cloud environment and to implement cost optimization practices.

Thales Digital Identity and Security (DIS) is a multifaceted enterprise that provides IT and security services for IoT government programs, banking, mobile encryption, and biometrics. The company embarked on a journey to the cloud, recognizing the benefits of Amazon Web Services (AWS) in terms of cost flexibility and diversity of services. Thales DIS quickly transitioned a dozen legacy solutions to AWS, aiming to maintain customer satisfaction while adhering to service-level agreements. However, they faced challenges in controlling cloud costs and needed a comprehensive cloud management platform to gain visibility into their expanding cloud environment and implement cost optimization practices.
Thales DIS chose CloudHealth by VMware for its ability to centralize costs and implement its FinOps strategy. CloudHealth answered all their needs in terms of performance, cost, and the user-friendliness of the tool. It was important for Thales DIS to have one tool that could centralize cost visibility across their different cloud environments. Thales DIS shared CloudHealth’s data with its technical teams to demonstrate how to accelerate its business transformation. The three main prongs of Thales DIS’ FinOps strategy are monitoring, optimizing, and forecasting. Within each prong, CloudHealth offers specific capabilities that help it to realize its goals. Thales DIS can control and monitor its monthly budgets much more easily with CloudHealth. The solution alerts Thales DIS when thresholds are met, allowing the team to make adjustments before surpassing their budget.

Predictive Maintenance for Industrial Chillers
For global leaders in the industrial chiller manufacturing, reliability of the entire production process is of the utmost importance. Chillers are refrigeration systems that produce ice water to provide cooling for a process or industrial application. One of those leaders sought a way to respond to asset performance issues, even before they occur. The intelligence to guarantee maximum reliability of cooling devices is embedded (pre-alarming). A pre-alarming phase means that the cooling device still works, but symptoms may appear, telling manufacturers that a failure is likely to occur in the near future. Chillers who are not internet connected at that moment, provide little insight in this pre-alarming phase.
